It is now clear that the US-NATO combine has lost in Afghanistan. They cannot make any more excuses.
The NATO summit in Chicago was an attempt to hide this fact. The corporate-owned media went along with this fraud to keep the American people in the dark about the true state of affairs. If the Afghans using primitive weapons have defeated the armies of 43 countries, it does not speak much for the hi-tech weapons of the West. They can destroy but cannot win wars. The sooner the Western armies leave the better for all concerned.
